Went here early morning. The caves are magnificent,but be aware that the steps and safety rails are not the best. Very slippery and in need of some repair. As an older couple and reasonable fit felt that the safety precautions could be a little improved. Still it was a good day and would recommend

The fairy caves doesn't attract too many tourists and if you are lucky to avoid the crowds, you will find yourself alone in the slightly lit up cave, looking over a damp and moist Jurassic Park landscape.

After climbing a few flights of stairs, I entered the caves over some more questionable wooden stairs. I was lucky enough to get there early so had the caves to myself which was magical. Nice attraction, be careful of your footing when you are in there!

The cave is very nice, but make sure you are able and willing to climb a lot of stairs. Entrance is 5 Rm and the visit takes about 1 hour. To get to the cave with public transport is a bit tricky. You have to take a bus from Kuching at busstation 2 to Bau. Don't focus on the timetable... More

Entrance fee: RM1 Visitors get to see the beauty of the cave. The stairs aren't hard to climb but do wear sport shoes for safety purposes.

magnificent view of the cave! the trek is a climb, but there are stairs and properly built treks, so you do not need to worry. but alas, wear proper attire because the time I went there, it had just rained, so the trek is a bit muddy. Don't run your beautiful dress ;p cheap entrance fee, do not miss it!

To go hear, either u need to rent a car or just come with a local, like me. I always come here everytime back to hometown, which is once a year. Do avoid touching the handrails and no slippers (can be very slippery sometimes). Bring your own torchlights also. And if you are bringing additional cloths, do enjoy the river... More

If you have not been inside a large cave before, Fairy Cave can be jaw-dropper. The main chamber is only reach by a series of dark almost vertical steps. A large opening on the ceiling of the cave allows daytlight to light up the main chamber, which looks like a set from Indiana Jones movie. Another flight of steps will... More

A large, mossy cave full of light - with many steps and pathways to access its nooks and crannies - just 50 k from Kuching. A wonderful atmosphere. Not high on safety so there is a need to step carefully and not be too trusting of "guard rails" in various parts of the cave - but on the other hand... More
